WCHOF Composer Series: Missouri Music at 200 by American Wild Ensemble

Join us for an evening of music that celebrates and reflects on the 2021 Missouri Bicentennial. The program includes newly commissioned chamber works for the American Wild Ensemble septet of winds, strings, and percussion, written by composers connected to and inspired by the state's history, heritage, and rich musical traditions.

The American Wild Ensemble (AWE) has continued to celebrate American people, places, and stories by bringing new thematic music to site-inspired locations. Since 2016, AWE has commissioned over 30 new works with the support of organizations including the National Endowment for the Arts, Chamber Music America, and Mid-America Arts Alliance. Collaborative projects have taken the group from the lava fields of Hawaii’s Big Island to caves in Kentucky 30 stories underground, to the site of the first suffragette convention in New York’s Seneca Falls.
